comparison between android vs iphone

I know that this question (who is the best Android vs iPhone?) Is one of the eternal questions that remain under discussion for ever without an answer. Just like Linux (Windows), Playstation (Xbox), etc. We are basically not here to say that Android is the best or iPhone is the best, in the end, each person’s choice of things he likes followed by several factors may be complex and intertwined

who is the best Android or iPhone?

First: Hardware

the shape:

Both machines offer high quality and excellent manufacturing. The iPhone 3Gs tend to be a bit more simple with only two colors, black and silver, with elegant round corners and a thickness of only 12.3 mm and a single logo is Apple’s famous logo. The Droid comes in black and gray with a little light brown, corners still rounded but sharper than the corners of the iPhone with a thickness of 13.70 mm, which means it is very thin because it comes with a full solid keyboard unlike the iPhone, which contains only a virtual keyboard on the touch screen Its own. That’s why Druid deserved the title of thinnest device equipped with a solid keyboard in the world. Unlike the iPhone, on Druid you will find three different logos: the logo of Motorola, the Google logo, and the logo of Verizon (the US telecommunications company that provides the device to its customers in the United States)

Technical Specifications:

Screen: The Druid features a large 3.7 “touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and a 240 pixel resolution in the lens with a 16: 9 aspect ratio. This is superior to the smaller 3.5-inch and 320 x 480 pixel Pixels in the animation and a 2: 3 height ratio. This makes Druid an excellent device for enthusiasts to follow high resolution movies on their mobile device.

Processor: The processor has the same processing speed of 600 MHz, with the only difference is that Motorola has reduced the processor frequency on the Druid to 550 MHz to maintain the battery for a longer time without adversely affecting the performance of the device.

Memory: The Droid comes with a 16 GB microSDHC memory card, and the iPhone does not come with a expandable memory slot. It comes with an internal memory of either 16 GB or 32 GB.

Battery: The Druid battery offers six and a half hours of continuous talk time and is interchangeable and therefore outperforms the non-replaceable iPhone battery if it is damaged and offers less talk time of 5 hours.

Camera: 5-megapixel camera with Image Stabilization technology, which keeps the picture from shaking during hand shooting, with four zoom levels, dual flash and Auto-Focus. The iPhone comes with a 3-megapixel camera with Auto-Focus only without flash and without the rest of the additional features.

Keyboard: Druid has a full solid keyboard, while the iPhone has a virtual keyboard that is used by the touch screen.

Well, given the specs we see that Druid is winning the battle. But there is one point where Druid does not outperform Multi-Touch. In fact, the Druid screen supports multi-touch, the Android system supports multi-touch, and developers can write programs that support multi-touch. There are already several Android programs that support this. MILESTONE (the same Druid but European router) supports zoom technology in the multi-touch web browser, while all the virtual programs that are loaded on Druid (in the US) Multi-touch support by default, while we see that multi-touch is everywhere for iPhone and is fully supported and excellent in the device. But what is the story of the lack of full and official support for multi-touch in Android devices? It is said, and there are no firm sources about this, that Apple owns the patent for multi-touch technology in the United States and thus prevents Google from supporting technology in the United States. For this reason Motorola Droid Technology supports by default the MILESTONE web browser in the European market and does not support the device available in the United States.

Second: Operating system: Android 2.0 vs. iPhone 3.0

Operating system: Android 2.0 vs. iPhone 3.0

Android is an open source operating system that Google offers free of charge to hardware manufacturers who can add their own personal touch to each company as you wish. That’s why there is no single and fixed Android platform like iPhone. This is positive because you will get Android within a wide range of different devices and you will see the operating system in different and different flavors. What if you liked the iPhone OS but did not like the format of the device? What if you like iPhone but you hate working on the virtual keyboard and prefer to work on a real keyboard? Unfortunately, Apple will only give you one device in the same unified format. While you will be able to use Android on the device you love and you will choose from a wide range of different devices and diverse. But this may also have a negative side: iPhone developers are not concerned about the different specifications of the devices that write their programs. One iPhone is known and known, while developers of Android applications suffer from different hardware and specifications among different devices to discover some of the problems that appear on the Some devices do not appear on the other and therefore have to make sure that their software works the same quality on all different phones


This is one of the most fundamental points in which Android outperforms the iPhone. Android supports multitasking unlike iPhone. In Android, you can keep multiple applications open and switch them as you like (just like you do in your normal operating system like Windows or Linux). So if you want in Android run the music program and listen to some songs while simultaneously surfing the web and chat on the Messenger at the same time this is possible in Android. IPhone allows you to do this but only for programs with it by default such as e-mail program, SMS, iPod and others. But you can not do the same for the rest of the programs that you install on the device. It’s true that it alerts you in some cases (like receiving a new message on Messenger) but in the end we can not say that iPhone has as many sophisticated and real functions as Android.

Widget support:

The main iPhone interface only contains icons for all software installed on the device and does not support Widgets. While Android provides support for Widgets that allows you to customize your desktop the way you like. Note in the images below how you can customize your Android device with a nice set of Widgets

third : Applications: Android Market vs. iPhone App Store

The next point may be the most important factor for customers when choosing between Android and iPhone. The iPhone App Store has more than 100,000 applications, while the Android Market is barely surpassing the application. Surely you should not expect all these applications to be 100 thousand of high quality, but the difference remains wide between the two. In the end, it’s a matter of time. The Android app market is a relatively new market compared to iPhone apps, and we can expect a big jump in the number of Android apps available next year. The point at which Android excels is that Google offers a more open development environment, meaning that they do not control and control the Android market in the way that Apple puts on its store. Android developers can develop and upload any application whatsoever to the Android Market, and Google will not intervene and verify the program submitted only in the event of a specific complaint against the program. Apple does not allow the developer to publish its software until it has been reviewed and approved. But in the end, it does not matter much to the end-user as long as he’s likely to find the program he’s looking for out of the 100,000 software available in the iPhone store.
For iPhone, you can only download applications through the iPhone Store. Google does not force the program developer to make his program available on the Android market exclusively, but opens the way for him to publish his program whenever he likes and wherever he wants. That’s why other markets, other than the official Android market, are starting to download Android programs in different ways. Such as SlideMe, AndAppStore and others.


Fourth: Multimedia

We have already said it and repeat it again. An iPod application that is available on the iPhone may be the best multimedia support application ever. Especially if you are a user of iTunes and you buy the latest versions of songs and movies and so on entertainment content from the way and then synchronized with your iPhone. But let’s face this? Who in the Arab world is buying his songs legally? And even if you want to buy songs legally, will you find the latest album by Kazim El Saher or Wael Kfoury in the iTunes store? Exclude this. It is true that you can use iTunes to manage your library in advance but unfortunately you may have some difficulties because iTunes and therefore iPhone does not support all the extensions of music and video files! What if your group has OGG, Xvid, DivX, MKV, etc. files? For iPhone it will not play until you convert it to MP3, ACC or MP4 format. Which is really annoying.
The music player that comes with Android, and because it is open source, if it does not support the operation of a particular version of the formulas, it is very likely that you will find another program in the Android market (or other) supports the operation of the formats you want. If you do not find a certain person or company is currently developing a program to run everything you think of different versions. Not to mention that iPhone wants to force you to use iTunes as your main music player even if you do not like it. So you have to work on two different programs. The main music player you like, and the iTunes program you will have to go to to synchronize your files on your computer and your iPhone.
The Android music player may not outperform the iPhone in terms of formatting and features, but if you download your X-Files from the torrent or have a large library of formats not supported by iPhone, you will make a great effort and time to convert them into a format that your iPhone can play.
